Guix 'R Us

A Guix channel, maintained by the whereiseveryone community.

Project page here.


We hope everyone will volunteer and join us in a concerted global effort to give free computing and society the attention, help, and chance it needs to succeed.

We have to nurture a community that takes the responsibility and compassion to pass down and share exceptional education and technology to those who might push free society forward into the next generations of the post-digital era.

The odds are against us if we don't.

Guix is the tool for this arduous work.


The goals of this channel are to provide packages and services that are:

  • Yet to be merged upstream.
  • In alpha or beta stage of development.
  • Customized to certain use-cases.
  • Nightly releases.


Send patches to ~whereiseveryone/

Please note that we only accept 100% free software.

jgart, unmatched-paren, and/or raghavgururajan can review patches and merge them.

Reach out if you would like to help us with reviewing code.

Note: Make sure you use #:prefix rus: when importing (guixrus ...) modules, to avoid name collisions.

You can subscribe to the mailing list by sending an email to ~whereiseveryone/
